I bought my Grand Am in '99, and she's still with me at 133,000 miles.
I Love getting into this car every time. The color (navy blue), the style.
There are just too many things that are falling off - both side mirrors, the overhead light, no visible clock, back window goes half-way up/down depending on mood. It's a good thing I own this car, because I wouldn't be able to afford the repairs every 3-4 months if I had to make car payments.
Giving up my Grand Am will be like losing my best friend - albeit a high-maintenance friend.
If I could find a way to replace all these problems to make it run for another 10 years, I would in half-a-heartbeat.

I love my gramd am. Sure a few things have gone wrong but nothing serious whatsoever. The check engine light goes on whenever I drive over a large bump in the road but my mechanic just said that's because something is getting stress put on it and sending a signal to the engine saying it needs to be fixed when it actually doesn't. Pontiacs have a lot of computer codes inside of the car and thats why a lot of these reviews say "my check engine light is always on". Other than that I love this car. It has a Nice pick-up and has awesome fuel economy.

I bought this car brand new & drove it
60K miles until it was totalled after
being hit at 60 MPH (I was doing 35) in
a semi-T-bone on the drivers side by a
DUI in a Tahoe. My injuries were less
than expected considering it took jaws
of life & 45 minutes to extract me.
Both axles were broke off. But the car
protected me and my passenger!! Car
ran perfectly with zero problems. Big-
O brakes never lasted long - was it
them or the car?

I have had this car for almost 4 yrs
and drive the heck out of it with over
80k now. It's been through every state
from east coast to TX and all kinds of
weather with never a problem. I'm out
with all the SUVs in the snow. I tow a
3,000lb boat, and the car performs like
it's towing very little.
The extent of my maintenance is that
I've replaced tires once and brakes
twice, a window and heat blower motor,
some antifreeze wiper blades, lamps and
of course many oil changes.

I just got this car two weeks ago to
replace a 2000 SE-1 which I got in
January of this year and was totalled
in an accident in September. I love
this (these) car(s)! The handling,
power, ride and styling are the best I
have ever owned in a vehicle. The
layout of the instrumentation and
accessories are very user friendly and
easy to understand and use.
